Acne Skin Care

We all need to follow a skin care regime that can keep or skin looking and feeling its best. But those of us who suffer from acne must be especially vigilant about the methods and products we use. Acne prone skin is very sensitive to the dyes, perfumes, and chemicals that are in many beauty products. If you have mild to moderate acne, here are the tips and techniques that can help improve the look and condition of your skin.

Acne Skin Care: Dealing With Problem Skin

Beauty Products
You have probably heard of dry skin, oily skin and combination skin. If you have acne, you may have decided that your skin type is either oily or combination. But actually, it's neither of these. Acne prone skin falls into a completely different category: problem skin. Problem skin …

If you are prone to developing acne, you should look for skin care products that are made to deal with acne. Don't use any beauty products that have added dyes and perfumes, as these ingredients can seriously aggravate your blemishes. Use a natural product like Oxy-Skin™ for your facial needs.

Nutrition
There are a number of vitamins and minerals that can be used to improve the look and condition of your skin. The mineral zinc, and vitamins A, C, and E, and B-complex vitamins like vitamin B6 are often used to support acne treatment, as these vitamins are very important for the health of your skin. Eating foods that are rich in sulphur may also be helpful as sulphur helps to cure acne. Garlic and onions both contain a good supply of sulphur. Your health care provider may also recommend that you avoid eating sugar, fried foods, or foods that have a high fat content. Also eliminate any sugar based carbonated beverages.

Acne Skin Care: The Dos and Don'ts
Acne prone skin needs special care. Here are the dos and don'ts of caring for skin with acne:

DO

•Gently wash your skin with warm water and a mild natural facial cleanser. Washing your skin twice a day will help to remove debris and pollutants that could block pores.
•Choose oil free cosmetics and beauty products. Regular make up contains fatty acids that are higher in fat than the fatty acids in your skin. Look for organic cosmetics that are made for sensitive or acne prone skin.www.make-up-cosmetics.com

DON'T

•Over wash your skin. Excessive scrubbing will aggravate acne and more causes blemishes to open up and spread.
•Pick your skin. Never pick, squeeze or abrade your acne blemishes. Squeezing a pimple or other blemish can cause permanent scarring. And breaking the scar can allow a secondary bacterial infection to take hold.
•Smoke. Cigarette smoke is a toxin that is destructive to the organs both inside and outside the body.
•Use skin toners. Skin toners provide extra cleansing to skin, but they are made of very drying ingredients such as alcohol and acetone that could be damaging to skin.
•Expose your skin to sun. Many people think that sunlight will improve acne. And while it's true that some sun exposure may help dry up surface acne blemishes, prolonged sun exposure can damage skin and make acne worse in the long run.

Acne Skin Care: The Cover Up
No matter how well you care for your acne prone skin, there will still be times when stress, climate changes, or pollution cause you to breakout with unsightly blemishes. When this happens, you can reduce the appearance by concealing the irritated skin with make up. However, special care is necessary when choosing cover up products and techniques to avoid calling more attention to the area. Here's the best way to conceal acne:

1.Wash and moisturize your face with a gentle facial cleanser. Start with a clean and fresh slate before applying any cosmetic products.
2.Look for a natural cover up product that has a high level of pigment. The more pigment the product has, the less of it you can put on while still getting good coverage. And do a swatch test with the product to ensure that it matches your skin tone exactly. Take a drop of the product and rub it on your skin. It should match your skin tone but you should not be able to see your skin underneath. This will provide the right amount of coverage to conceal a blemish.
3.Apply concealer in natural light. It is very important for your concealer to blend seamlessly with your face.
